**Section Formula CBSE NCERT Solutions Chapter 7 Exercise 7.2 Question 4**

**4. **Find the ratio in which the line segment joining the points** (-3, 10) and (6, -8)** is divided** by (-1, 6).**

**Solution:**

Let **(-1, 6)** divides line segment joining the points** (-3, 10)** and **(6, -8)** in **k:1**

**Using Section formula, we can say that**

-1 = ((-3).1 + 6.k)/(k+1)

Therefore, the ratio is which is equivalent to **2:7**

Therefore, **(-1, 6)** divides line segment joining the points** (-3, 10)** and **(6, -8)** in **2:7**
